Ole’s message to United fans

Old Trafford has been devoid of supporters since March 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic and while the team have played in front of some fans on our travels at points during the season, the Reds have yet to be reunited with our own supporters.

Tuesday night will see that reunion take place and Ole says it will be a real thrill for everyone associated with the club.

The manager spoke to club media’s Stewart Gardner ahead of our clash with the relegated Cottagers as he gave his thoughts on seeing fans back in the stands, securing second place and what he’s expecting from our Player of the Year voting…

Firstly Ole, Tuesday night’s game against Fulham will obviously be a big night as we’ll finally have some of our fans back in the stadium – how much are you and the players looking forward to seeing them again?
“Very much so. The last time we had them in was a fantastic night [against Manchester City in March 2020] and ever since then it’s been something that we’ve been crying out for. Hopefully we can enjoy the night together. It’s been too long, but of course that’s the world we’ve been living in and, now it’s safe to do so, it’s going to be a good moment.”

How much does their support make a difference, especially when games are tight and which moment or game over the past year would you have loved the fans to be there for?
“There have been a few moments. That extra adrenaline and energy that you get from your fans is vital and I think we’ve all seen the results home and away and the comparison that there’s been more away wins than home wins which is not natural. That just shows how important the fans are.”
